Since YGAM was founded five years ago, we have quickly established ourselves as a leading educational charity which builds digital resilience in young and vulnerable people, by training professionals to raise awareness of the potential of gaming and gambling-related harm; making resources available for parents and delivering impactful student campaigns with partner universities. Last year alone, we have reached approximately 364,918 young people, students and parents and we have collaborated with almost 2,488 educational organisations (schools, colleges, universities and charities) to deliver our programmes.

YGAM are incredibly proud to be working with all stakeholders in this space, from the gambling & gaming operators who make products available to the public; education professionals who support young people & students learning; the criminal justice sector; partner universities; public health; third sector organisations; sports clubs; Local Authorities and young people, students and parents themselves.
